TVLine Items: Is GH Welcoming Another One Life Vet? Plus: Downton Season 3 Scoop and More!

Has another One Life to Live alum found new life on General Hospital?

As reported by suds blog, Florencia Lozano is slated to bring her tough-as-nails Llanview attorney, Tea Delgado, to Port Charles this spring.

A spokesperson for the soap could not confirm the report to TVLine.

Lozano’s One Life journey ended with her pregnant character determined to take down Roger Howarth’s Todd Manning for “murdering” her husband, Victor Lord Jr. (played by Trevor St. John). Howarth, as we first reported, has been made a contract player on GH, alongside his on-screen offspring Kristen Alderson (Starr).

Downton Abbey executive producer Rebecca Eaton recently spoke with the Orlando Sentinel about the PBS breakout hit’s upcoming third season — and it sounds like things are about to get cray-zay in the titular Yorkshire-based estate. “Somebody will be born, and somebody will die,” she revealed. “Somebody pretty key in the cast, unfortunately [is] not going to make it.” Eaton also confirmed that “Matthew and Mary do get married.”

Rosie O’Donnell and Dan Akyroyd have booked guest spots in separate episodes of Happily Divorced, reports. The latter will play a potential love interest for Fran Drescher’s character, while the former drops by as an old friend of the leading lady. Both episodes of the TV Land comedy will air in May.

Fox is pulling the long-running COPS from its Saturday schedule for the foreseeable future in order to maximize its sports coverage. While a rep for the reality series tells Vulture (who first reported the news) that the network is merely “cutting back [its] order,” the reality is that 28 of the 32 Saturdays between April 14 and Dec. 8 will consist of some semblance of college football, MLB, NASCAR and UFC programming.

    Oh nos, Cops is being cut back! However will we survive?

  2. So glad to hear that Mary and Mathew do get married. Hopefully neither of them also turn out to be the one who dies. Also, Sybil and Tom are my favorite couple, so I hope we see more of them, and I can only assume the someone being born is their child.

  3. Patti says:

    Glad Finola Hughes is on contract. Now if only GH would get Tristan Rogers’ back on contract as Robert.

  4. Vanessa says:

    Thank you for including soaps in your news. Soaps are tv shows too!

  5. TV Gord says:

    With Fox being a little more competitive on Saturday nights, maybe it will stop being a dumping ground for the other broadcast networks! It would be nice to see networks programming seven days a week again!

  6. Heather says:

    I really, really hope that Tea comes to GH! It would be great to see her and Alexis go at it in the courtroom. I know she would win.

  7. they’re going to kill the dowager aren’t they :'( if they do the show is dead

  8. Niki Sleestack says:

    Florencia is one fierce bitch, and a fantastic actress. She’ll wipe the floor with those Port Charles wimps. But will Tea have had her baby, or will she come to GH childless, like her stepdaughter Starr Manning did?

  9. Peter says:

    GH has enough oltl people allready. What GH needs to do is bring more vets back rebuild the core families the spencers,webbers,baldwins,hardys and quartermains. They’ve relied to long on the mob charctars which is boring me. Thankfully heather webber is back the shows last few episodes have been great.allso this Maxie storyline is annoying so is the actress.

  10. I love Tea! The actress that plays her is fenominal and I am looking forward to her bringing the character to GH! Now they definitely need to bring Trevor St. John on board as Victor so they can finally reveal that he is alive!
